Windows 11: Bring back the Classic Context Menus

Windows 11 brings a new version of the context menus (the ones that appear when you right-click on a folder, for example). They contain less items, so this can be quite annoying. If you want to bring back the behaviour from Windows 10, do either of the following:

  • Open the Command Prompt (admin) and run the “reg add “HKCU\Software\Classes\CLSID\{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}\InprocServer32″ /f /ve” command
  • Open the Registry in the “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\CLASSES\CLSID” path, create the “{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}” key, create the “InprocServer32” key, and set the default String to blank, and restart the computer.
